Doyle by Sherri George - 01949 - Internet use

 

  DENTON, NC (May 6, 2014) — The maestro of the mandolin, Doyle Lawson, one of the lions in the Bluegrass genre, is returning to Denton Farm Park the weekend of May 8-10, 2014, for the 34th Annual Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver Bluegrass Music Festival.

 

  The artists performing this year include Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Marty Rabon, Larry Sparks, the Crowe Brothers, Goldwing Express, Bill Yates and the Country Gentleman Tribute Band, Little Roy & Lizzy, The Church Sisters, Audie Blaylock & Redwine, James King Band, Balsam Range, A Deeper Shade of Blue, Lonesome Will Mullins, The Boxcars, Lonesome River Band, Big Country Bluegrass, and a special performance from Doyle Lawson, J.D. Crowe and Paul Williams billed as ‘Old Friends.’

 

  “We have a fantastic lineup again this year,” said Karen Miller, whose parents Brown and Ruby Loflin founded the Farm Park. “We are especially excited about the ‘Old Friends’ reunion of Doyle Lawson, J.D. Crowe and Paul Williams, and we are so honored to have Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver as our host band.”

 

  Lawson, a Tennessee native from Sullivan County near Kingsport, began playing the mandolin at age 11 with a borrowed mandolin from a family friend. Doyle cut his teeth listening to Bill Monroe on the radio playing the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday nights.

 

  The young boy from East Tennessee with stars in his eyes and a mandolin in hand went on to become a Bluegrass legend whose achievements continue to soar. With nearly 40 albums to their credit, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver (DLQ) have multiple Grammy, Dove, ICM, IBMA and SPBGMA Award nominations, and are 7-time winners of IBMA’s Vocal Group of the Year.

 

  In 2013, DLQ were crowned Bluegrass Gospel Artist of the Year at the 22nd Annual Diamond Awards, and Doyle Lawson received his sixth SPBGMA Mandolin Performer of the Year Award. Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver reigned as the Inspirational Country Music Association (ICM) Vocal Group of the Year in 2012, the same year Lawson was inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.

 

  “We always look forward to the Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver Festival every year, to seeing old friends and making a few new ones,” said Doyle Lawson. “We’re excited for a great week of music, and look forward to seeing everyone in Denton!”

 

  DLQ Bluegrass Festival Denton Poster 2014   “Denton Farm Park is known for its family friendly atmosphere, so plan on bringing the whole family!” said Miller. “Plenty of good food will be available, and campground picking will be heard away from the main stage.”

 

  Ticket prices at the gate are $90 for three days, $70 for two days, and $40 for one day. Children under 15 are admitted FREE with a paying parent. Teenagers ages15-17 are half the gate price when admitted with a paying parent.

 

  On Saturday, rides and games in the children’s area will be FREE.

 

  A golf tournament at Asheboro Country Club will kick off the event on Thursday with registration beginning at the club at 5105 Old Lexington Road in Asheboro at 9:00 a.m. Participants will play 18 holes of golf with cart included and a catered meal at the club. Trophies will be given for 1st and 2nd Place, Longest Drive, and Closest to the Pin. Fee is $55 per player.

 

  Concerts begin on Thursday, May 8, at 1:00 p.m., and music runs until 11:40 p.m. nightly through Saturday.

ARDEN, NC (January 16, 2014) – Bluegrass Legend Doyle Lawson was honored by his record label Mountain Home Music, as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver were presented with a glistening engraved plaque last week commemorating their song “Dixie Road” topping the prestigious Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine Monthly Song chart at #1 for December 2013.

 

The #1 song “Dixie Road” is from Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver’s 2013 release “Roads Well Traveled” on Mountain Home Music label, a subsidiary of Crossroads Entertainment.

 

“The folks at Crossroads have sure treated me well,” said Lawson. “I appreciated the beautiful plaque, as well as all the honors which the song and album have earned this year.”

 

In addition to reigning atop the Bluegrass Unlimited chart, “Dixie Road” and “Roads Well Traveled” also scored places on several end-of-the-year “Tops” lists encompassing the best 2013 heard in Bluegrass and Country music, including:

 

Bluegrass Today Top 30 Songs – “Dixie Road” at #6

 

Engine 145’s Best of Bluegrass Top 25 Albums – “Roads Well Traveled” at #16

 

That Nashville Sound Top Albums – “Roads Well Traveled” at #12

 

That Nashville Sound Top Songs – “How Do You Say Goodbye to Sixty Years?” at #20 and “When Love Is All You Want” at #86

 

“We’re always honored when our music is embraced,” said Lawson, “and we were happy to see Dixie Road climb to #1 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s chart and be honored by our label for that achievement. We appreciate Mountain Home’s hard work in helping get us there, as well as every fan, disc jockey, radio station, and certainly Bluegrass Unlimited. It’s also an honor to be recognized among the best, and we genuinely appreciate it!”

 

Doyle Lawson is reigning SPBGMA Mandolin Player of the Year, while Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver (DLQ) were named Bluegrass Gospel Artist of the Year at the 22nd Annual Diamond Awards in October. Lawson and his band are currently nominated for five awards in the upcoming 40th Annual SPBGMA Awards to be held February 2 in Nashville.
